    Style of Music: Blues, jazz, pop and country.

    Experience: 40 years in and out of playing rhythm and lead guitar for jazz, blues, pop and country bands.

    "A slick and sexy looking guitar for a unbelievable price."

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    This is a wonderful top of the line thin hollowbody guitar. It just looks like quality. The sound can be whatever you can make it with your kind of amp. The twin humbuckers can give you jazz when used along with the tone controls, blues can be a killer sound, esp. with tube amp. This is an all around type of music guitar. sThe playability of this guitar is second to none. It certainly can hold it's own with my Gibson ES 135 on sound and playability. The price just can't be beat for a quality axe like this. This is my first encounter with Ibanez but certainly won't be my last.
    Feature:
    This guitar is quality all the way. Beautiful maple body. The rosewood neck is sleek and fast when set up right. I am not kidding when I say "it seems like sometime the neck just takes my fingers where they should be with out even thinking about it. In fact this has happened while playing along with one of my blues/jazz cd's. The tunomatic bridge is first class and the bridge and stop are artfully designed. What an appropriate name for this guitar (Artcore).
    Ease of Use:
    This guitar is one of the most playable guitars I have ever owned. It rates right up there with my Gibson ES-135. If you have a good amp you can get any kind of sound you wish. It has a great clean sound and a filthy strashy sound when run through my Peavy Studio Chorus 210. I like the reverb set to around 4 and chorus set to the mid ranges on both control knobs. I will be running it through a Behringer modeling amp when I get it from SDM. I can't wait to hear the sounds I will get from this wonnderful guitar.
    Quality:
    This guitar is quality made. It is a beautiful work of art with it's sexy lines and thin body and contours. It has a set in neck just like my Gibson does but not quite as heavy as the Gibson ES-135. I never have aconcern that something will break on it. This is top of the line reliability with a small price. It looks great with the mother of pearl Ibanez name and logo on the headstock. And with it's chrome grover tuners it never goes out of tune. his is just one of the best bargains in a guitar you will ever see. I highly recommend it; expecially for a experienced musician. I have never owned a Gibson 335 but it can't be any better than my Ibanez. These people really know how to build fine, beautiful instruments. You will never be sorry if you buy this sweet thing. I am using D;adarrio 11's on it right now for blues, jazz and pop/country. The 11's are quite playable just don't have the bend that the 10's do. I would not go lighter than 10's on this guitar.
    Manufacturer Support:
    I've never had to deal with the Ibanez company. I don't expect to ever have to use the warranty. I am conpletely satisfied with my choice. I believe that Ibanez would rate right up there with Gibson in good Customer Service.
    Value:
    You will never own a gibson or Fender of this superior quality for this low price, $300.00. There are three guitar companies where you can find top quality instruments at such reasonable prices. Ibanez, Alvarez and Washburn. My Ibanez is the best value in this type of guitar that I have found.
    The Wow Factor:
    Yes it has a sexy curvaceous look about it. It truly has the shape of a beautiful sexy girl. And there is just something about the thin body that would draw me to this guitar. I have the sunburst model. What a truly beautiful sexy guitar for a song. What else do you need?
    Overall:
    I am overall very satisfied and have no complaints whatsoever.

    Style of Music: what ever i feel like playing

    Experience: Hobbyist

    "I was going to buy a Strat"

    Sound:
    Fat sounding double humbuckers, it sounds like a Les Paul, what more do you want!!!
    Feature:
    It didnt have a tremolo which is ok, I think that Ibanez could have went with a string thru body configuration. Other than that the guitar is great
    Quality:
    Built like a 2000.00 guitar
    Manufacturer Support:
    I dont know, I havent had to call them up yet.
    Value:
    plays like a ES335 at a 10th of the price
    The Wow Factor:
    I dont know, I use it to make music not for the sex appeal. But it is a very pretty guitar and I would want to buy another one
    Overall:
    this guitar is definitly the best value in any music shop

    "Ibanez AS73"

    Sound:
    I enjoy this guitar very much and I play it constantly. The only problem I have with this guitar is that the bridge pickup shouldnt be so... bright and maybe it should be a little louder.
    Feature:
    I just put a ten here cause it has 4 volume and tone knobs instead of 2. Other than that nothing special.
    Quality:
    The binding should be a little better in the f-holes but other than that well made in my eyes.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Havent tried to contact Ibanez yet and I don't feel I'll have to.
    Value:
    VERY good for 300. I tried the Epiphone Dot Studio and it just didnt compare.
    The Wow Factor:
    Aesthetically its pretty but not jaw dropping. But when i heard the jazz solos my teacher could rip out of this thing i loved the round sweet tones so i am quite attracted to this guitar.
    Overall:
    Great product, definetly would buy it again if it were stolen. Ibanez good job.
